    Whoever made them did a nice neat and precise job.

    Being made of natural bone they will start to develop a nice aged patina in time from exposure to natural skin oils, gun oil, sweat and atmospheric pollution.
    That eventual patina is a desirable feature so don't attempt to clean them.

    They look fine when viewing the pistol as a whole. QKShooter has a point about the patina they will develop. A nice mellow ivory or even butterscotch hue would look nice with that stainless finish.

    I think they set the gun off and give it a special appearance. My taste? No, but I appreciate the look nonetheless.

    The guy I shoot Tuesday Night Steel with shot some videos of me. My Springer TRP must be the only gun on the line with real walnut grips, but I'm such a traditionalist they sure look good to me.

    Yes, I think they will age nicely. Repost us a new Pic after they have had some wear.
